St Albans & Harpenden Covid Vaccination Service
The 12 GP practices across St Albans, Harpenden and surrounding areas are working together to offer a community focussed, at scale COVID-19 Vaccination service from 2 central locations in St Albans, at Batchwood Hall (STAVACS) and Harpenden Public Halls. We are offering the vaccination to our whole community, if you are aged 18+ and have not been invited for a vaccination, please contact your GP practice. If you have received your first vaccination at Batchwood, your GP practice will invite you in when it is your turn for your 2nd dose (currently 8 weeks), you do not need to contact the practice.
The GP Practices involved in this project are;
Abbey Health PCN: The Maltings Surgery | Lattimore & Village Surgery
Alban Healthcare PCN: Grange Street Surgery | Midway Surgery | Parkbury House Surgery
HLH PCN: Harvey Group Practice | The Lodge Health Partnership | Hatfield Road Surgery
Colney Medical Practice
Harpenden Health PCN: Davenport House Surgery | The Elms Medical Practice | The Village Surgery
Your GP practice teams have worked hard to invite all those aged 18+ including; care home residents, care home staff, housebound patients and staff working in health and social care.
Vaccine delivery to our sites
Whilst we are working together, our two distinct site locations St Albans & Harpenden both receive vaccine from a central NHS supply chain. Unfortunately the deliveries by NHS England are not aligned so vaccination days and systems used will be slightly different at each site. You can be assured that both sites are working incredibly hard to ensure all patients receive vaccinations as soon as is practically possible.
Not yet been invited
If you, a loved one or someone you care for is aged 18+ or in a priority group and has not yet received an invitation from your GP to have a vaccination, please contact your registered practice. We will use a variety of communication methods including phone calls, text messages and letters, in line with the contact details we hold for patients, to invite you in.
Alternative Vaccination Locations - outside of St Albans & Harpenden
You may receive an invitation to book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment through the central booking service, 119.
This service is operated separately from the Batchwood vaccination site.
If you have already received your first dose locally, you should wait until your GP practice invites you in for your second dose, this will be 8 weeks after dose 1.
